Happy New Year.
I'm a TN Handgun Permit holder and I carry daily.
I prefer autoloaders but I'm also interested in odd calibers, so I will use this thread to post my first question.
Does anyone carry a .17HMR revolver for a back up?
I don't own one yet but the urge is there.

I can't think of anyone who has a .17 as BUG. It is not I feel, other than on small varmints - a whole lotta use. The smallest I'll go personally with a BUG (which in fact is a BUG's BUG!) - is NAA mini in .22 mag.

I don't own a .17HMR revolver, so my answer must be no.
